Spinach, Herb and Feta Stuffed Pork Loin

Spinach Herb Feta Stuffed Pork Loin

Now that you have the method of stuffing a pork loin under your belt, let me share one of my favorite flavor combinations: fragrant fresh herbs with tangy feta and spinach.

This pork loin works well either wrapped in prosciutto or breaded.  Take a peek at my previous post for a step by step tutorial on both methods.

Any mixture of your favourite herbs will work great – all that freshness will infuse into the pork and meld with the feta cheese for a succulent and juicy beautiful porky pinwheel. 🙂

For my mix I’ve used fresh mint which pairs so well with feta cheese and spinach (YUM spanakopita!!).  And, I used fresh sage which is a delicious partner to pork; plus a little fresh parsley to tie it all together.  Feel free to use whatever fresh herbs you can get your hands on in this recipe.

Layer out the herbs and the feta cheese first and then pile on the fresh spinach.  Isn’t that beautiful!?

    What temperature does the loin need to be cooked at?

      Hi Derek, oops- sorry for leaving that important element off the recipe! After browning on the stove top, the loin should be cooked in a pre-heated 350F oven. I’ll update that in the recipe in case you want to print it off! I’d love to know how it comes out for you. Enjoy.
